Glad I bought these tires but wished I bought 4. No problems except on ice on my long slanted driveway. No issues when driving in the snow storm after Christmas from upstate NY to NYC and back.

I waited to review these tires and have put 17000 miles on so far and they still look like new. Thrilled with the value of these tires which replaced my lousy Goodyear Eagle RSAs. So much quieter and handling great and have a nice smooth ride. No complaints whatsoever. Would and will buy Nexen for my next set of tires. I avg about 34,000 miles a year and drive in all kinds of conditons. Great tire great price. I gave 9s across the board under the assumption that a tire double in price tire may provide a perfect 10 but not sure. Bottom line....Great tire and happy with my purchase through Mavis.
